Lonnie David Franklin Jr., also known as the Grim Sleeper, was a serial killer who committed at least 10 murders and one attempted murder in Los Angeles from 1984 to 2007. In 2010, he was arrested as a suspect and, after numerous delays, his trial began in 2016. Ultimately, he was convicted of killing nine women and a teenage girl.

The Los Angeles Police believe that Franklin may have been responsible for even more murders and are asking for help from the public in identifying the women in some of the photographs he possessed. Investigators discovered nearly 1,000 photos and hundreds of hours of video showing women, many of them partially or completely disrobed and in sexually suggestive poses. Detectives tried to identify the women in the pictures, but after months of investigation, the department decided to release some of the images to the public in hopes that someone would recognize the women and contact the authorities.

A Mysterious Time Traveler At The South Forks Bridge Opening

In 2004, the Barlorne-Pioneer Museum displayed an exhibit called "Their Past Lives Here," which included a photo that had been hidden from public view. The photo was taken in 1941, during the reopening of Canada's South Fork Bridge. In 2010, the museum digitized its collection and made it available online, and some internet users noticed something unusual in the photo: one of the men appeared to be wearing clothes that were too modern for the time period. This sparked a conspiracy theory that the man was a time traveler. However, further investigation revealed that the man's clothes, including a logo t-shirt, wrap-around sunglasses, and a small portable camera, were all available in the 1940s. Therefore, the theory of a time traveler is not supported by the evidence available.
